AppLoader for load testing

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-08-22
Review Source: Capterra

As a load and performance tester, my job is to find the peeks and performance failures in the clients' systems, and report them. I used AppLoader for more than 50 clients' projects, and the clients love the reports and graphs generated by the tool, as it helps them correct performance failures.

Pros
What I liked the most about AppLoader, is that it can test almost all types of applications (desktop, webservices, web applications...), you just need a human machine interface. I loved the reports generated by AppLoader and the easiness of launching parallel users at the same time. I also loved the instant reporting and the screenshots of the failures during the test. I enjoyed the easiness of using ScenarioBuilder to create the performance scenarios. The greatest thing about this software, and I am sure all AppLoader's users will answer the same, is the reactivity and quality of the support team. They are always available and reactive and very helpful in case of problems with the software.

Cons
What I liked the least about it, is its price. AppLoader is very expensive when comparing it to other tools for performance and load testing in the market. Therefore, it cannot be used by small sized companies.

AppLoader Review

Review Source: Capterra

I am currently a load test engineer at Capgemini, and so we run large load campaigns to our clients' applications. Clients use different languages and different technologies in their applications, so we have to use a tool that fits to all that. AppLoader meets with what we and our customers want: automating the scenarios, setting up the test plan and running the test shots with the number of users that client wants; delivering high quality reports at the end of the load shots.

Pros
-AppLoader is very easy to understand and to use since each feature contains informations on what it means and how to use it, also when automating scenarios, the tool is very easy. -AppLoader can load test all types of applications and all types of languages since it's based on image recognition. -The quality of the report generated by the tool in the end of each load test shot. -The greatest thing about this software is the support, the support team is very efficient ; they are always available whenever we have an issue with the tool, they provide us with help, support and problem fixing.

Cons
-The software misses clicking on images or on buttons from time to time and it causes the scenario's failure. -Sometimes the tool exceeds the shot's execution time and has to be stopped manually.

Apploader Review ERVIA Ireland

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

positive. we have had some initial teething problems with the config but these are to be expected. your support team has been very helpful in resolving our issues but as mentioned above the time difference between Ireland and California has meant that the process has sometimes taken longer than we would have liked

Pros
the ease of use. I've used other performance tools in the past which end up requiring more coding than the applications they are supposed to test... so the fact that scripts can be built from the GUI without the need to write code is a definite plus

Cons
when we have needed support the response has been uniformly helpful and positive. the lack of a support line covering European working hours has delayed resolving issues a couple of times. Is theer no way that members of the support team in California could work staggered shifts to cover non US based clients

Pros
One of a kind monitoring software that able to emulate human interface and detect any abnormally in the software and send alert accordingly or create a history of performance from the human experience perspective

A bit tedious to configure if monitoring steps are too complex. But I think it is the nature of the complexity software

Pros
Ability to handle complex use cases without the need to handle programmatically capturing dynamic information from server side or manipulating extensive data sets to let scripts work.

Cons
Maintenance cost of the scripts as we switch software versions frequently or switch environments has been a concern though in recent NRG software versions, this has been mitigated to a large extent.

With AppLoader, it was possible to test and verify the performance of an application that needed to be tested. This enabled me to understand the expected performance requirements before putting them into an active environment.

Pros
ease of use, all very intuitive. I had no problem.

Cons
I have little use of the software, I have not gotten any bad experiences yet.

Pros
I liked that you are able to easily choose images to automate processes. I also like how you can have the program create multiple users to run the tests.

Cons
I did not like some aspects of the image detection. Sometimes there was a difference in shading when a cursor is over an icon and you needed to attach multiple images because of this.

Was not able to use it for all our needs. Is a little limited in the capabilities that my company needed.

We work to make sure every purchase is supported so that full capability is realized. Your feedback is valuable, so we'd love it if you'd share the limitations you found so we can make clearer how to access features and/or make improvements to the product. Hope to hear from you.
